SOLAR DYEING WORKSHOP

Solar Dyeing

Date:  Saturday, June 16th
Time: 1 – 3pm

Instructor: Caitlin ffrench

 

This class explores the world of natural dyes. You will learn how to utilize the sun to make beautiful colours using different mordants and dyes. This is a great way to get beautiful colours without having to spend the day around a dye pot. (Although you will have to wait to see your results!)

You will be using locally harvested dyes, as well as exotic colours! You will go home with four jars to keep in your own window. They will produce lovely samples! You will also learn the health and safety tips of dyeing! Please wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting stained!

 

Materials:  Each student must bring at least 100g of a worsted weight or DK weight yarn (in white or off white) AND 4 glass jars with resealable lids (at least 250ml capacity each)
